Meeting of the East African Community (EAC) Task Force on Cyberlaws
This meeting organized by the EAC Secretariat and UNCTAD will discuss the next phase of cyberlaw implementation in EAC partner States. It will take stock of advances in cyberlaw development since the last gathering of the Task Force in June 2010. The meeting will also review progress in the implementation of the Framework for Phase I endorsed by the EAC Council of Ministers last November, make recommendations thereof as well as discuss the Draft Framework for Phase II. Both Frameworks provide guidelines for the enactment and enforcement of harmonized cyberlaws in the region. The first Framework covers electronic transactions, electronic signatures and authentication, data protection and privacy, consumer protection, and computer crime. The second deals with issues related to intellectual property rights, competition, e-taxation, and information security.
